Sanitarium are claiming that their factory is nearly up and running, with a council inspection due on Friday. Now they still aren’t prepared to tell anyone when their ShiteMite will be on the shelves – but they have had a roasting after leading people to believe it would all be sorted by July, and then October and having been proven to be completely wrong about both. Gosh – there’s a shock.
Now the interesting thing is that I was down in Christchurch a few weeks ago, and as my life seem to have been somewhat taken over my the disgusting yeast extract – I ended up talking to a few people about Sanitarium, their tax Dodge, their religious ownership and their hell-bent-on-suing-people attitude to Public Relations. (I hear on the grapevine they have threatened another supplier of UK products) Including a chat with someone working on the site.
Now clearly – this is second hand information, and so I have no proof, but they were telling me the place isn’t anywhere near ready. And that if Sanitarium are telling people it was, they were lying. We were also told that Non -SDA workers were expected to stay away from the SDA workers at lunchtime (because they had meat in their sammies!).
Which matches some other comments littered around the internet about how Sanitarium treat their Non-Religious staff, and what is going on at the build.

thought we would share something with you some funny info… a guy building new factory for sanitarium has just told us at least 2 months before its finished…. oh what a damn shame not!!
